More than £600 was raised throughout the weekend for charities and it will be an annual occasion for the town.

Works on display included portraits of famous faces and scenic outdoor scenes.

Former Mayor of Thame and rotarian Jeannette Matelot Green said all those taking part in the November 3 and 4 event agreed ‘the venue could not be better’. Any artist interested in exhibiting in next year’s show should get in touch with organisers via the official website at www.thame.rotaryweb.org

Rotary clubs are open to people who are business, professional and community leaders wanting to use their experience to the benefit of others.
